On Friday i had to make the decision that there was not going to be any way to afford a hotel room the night before the trip. So about 4 a.m. we all got up to make the 5 hour drive down to Cincinnati, Ohio to King's Island. (Mind you that i really made it in about 41/2)
I could not sleep Friday night at all, I tried about 4 times to lay down and go to sleep, but it was just not going to happen. I felt like the Walt Disney commercial that said "I'm to excited to sleep". That and I am too stressed out about bills and such. So I got no sleep at all and drove all the way there.
We made it down there just as they opened the park. We mapped out our course and went to town on all the fun rides. Darin went on his first roller coaster and his daddy said that he was gonna puke. I love roller coasters and I wished that i could have done them with him, but alas my fat ass could not fit in the roller coasters seats. How dissapointing! How embarrassing! I did get to go on the White Water Rafting ride. That would be alot funner if you can go barefooting so your shoes don't get wet. The kids LOVED this ride! They went on it two times. They also loved the Scrambler, that's always their favorite at a carnival.
We went on the replica of the Eifel Tower, it's only a third the size of the real one. All i can say is that i don't want to even attempt the real Eifel Tower. But we did get a beautiful view of the whole park and some of Ohio.
We also went to the water park there and they had a blast in the pools and the slides and the large fun water activities they had there. They were totally soaked and having so much fun. I just waded my legs in the water, i was not up for swimming .
We did make it to the last show of what they called the "School of Rock". It was a concert and they played alot of rock music of the "80's", Me and Frank were rockin it out. lol The kids really enjoyed the music also and they pretty much said that was their favorite part.
We stayed at the park from 10 in the morning till 7:30 at night. We were all under the same sun and I am still wondering why i was the only one that got fried! My face looked like a huge tomato! My husband has nothing my son and daughter has nothing...just me! God just hates me i guess.
So after that we decided that we better start heading home. I drove all the way back home on zero sleep! It was a hard feat but i managed. I am glad that i had packed pop and chips for the ride home. Luckily the cooler kept everything cold. I made it home in only 4 hours! Only had to make one potty break! It was great to get home into our air conditioning and fans, it felt so nice on my red hot face. All in all we all had fun. But i think we would have had more fun at Seaworld, watching the animals do tricks.
In other news...I was just told today that in probably a couple of months they will be cutting my hours in half. When one of our managers returns to our store, supposedly we both will get 20 hours. I pray that won't happen...but I have to start looking for a full time job, so i am not lost if it does happen. This really sucks!!!! I'm really worried about losing medical, all my pills.
Hopefully everything will turn out alright. Pray for me..
